Funny songs make the models laugh!

That's one of the things we learned in the second night of our 2 week pose with Carly. We welcomed new Guild Member Romel (Guess what? another American Academy of Art Alum - that makes 10 of us!) and determined that the music played must not ever again be so depressing.

Oh the cleverness of me!

Brimstone and gall Mr. Smee! What devilry is this? Carmella took us all on a fantastic trip to Neverland (no pixie dust required!) via her fantastic conjuring of the boy who would not grow up: PETER PAN! We even had Tinker Bell join the fun. Great time today as we welcomed new guild member Othell who possess a fantastic comic book style of drawing. Next week we take a break due to the Labor Day weekend, but return on September 7 as Jamie brings us the "Crow King."

Moogles, Chocobos & Heartless, OH MY ! ! !

Carmela gave a great set of poses of the character Roxas from the Kingdom Hearts series. (I pretended it was Cloud from Final Fantasy VII) We all had a fun time listening to some great RPG soundtracks and are looking forward to having her grace us again next Sunday dressed as the classic Disney rendition of Peter Pan!

Full House !

We certainly learned a valuable lesson on how to properly lay out a pose to accommodate a large crowd. On the first night of our 2 week pose, we had a full complement of 14 artists in attendance, but due to the set up nearly everyone was stuffed at one end of the studio. Next time we will make sure there are good viewpoints from 180 degrees so everyone can have room to draw and paint comfortably! That being said, the results from everyone were superb and we happily welcomed new members Kurt, Jessica, Hero & Mario! A special thanks to our model Krista who got to experience her first professional model session with us.

BRAVO ! ! !

Krista was absolutely magnificent today as the Black Swan, the poses were great and the anatomy was fantastic. Seriously, seeing a trained dancer activate the muscle groups like that was figure drawing heaven. We will definitely revisit this pose. Next Sunday Carmella will be gracing us with an incredible Cosplay costume of Cloud from Final Fantasy 7!

Hey Daddy-o, don't be so square, you dig?

We were happy to welcome Paupers Art Guild's first Junior Auxiliary Guild member Dali today as our model Carly took us back to an era of hula-hoops, yo-yo's, cream sodas and such for our inaugural "Pin-up" model session. Come September these will be held on Saturday afternoons and of course will not necessarily be as innocent as today's pose! However, we will be hosting kid friendly costumed model sessions starting in mid September as well so artists of all ages can come 'git their art on! Next week is Krista donning the "Black Swan" and doing all sort of ballet things!
